Looking over the Great Bear Wilderness from the Flathead Range.

The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation is hosting its annual Voices of the Wilderness celebration and fundraiser on Friday, Nov. 2 at the Lodge at Whitefish Lake at 6 p.m. This year, the keynote speakers will be United States Forest Service employees discussing winter travel and conducting snow surveys in the Wilderness during the winter months.

Michael Reavis is the assistant packer for Spotted Bear Ranger District, an avid backcountry skier, and talented photographer. Michael will share slides of some of his images of winter travel over the years. He will discuss the different landscapes, and some of the safety precautions needed while traveling during the extreme winter months.
